[ cheers and applause ] i've only been here for, not by
choice but in the winters, doing plays and stuff like that. like, i have not spent a whole summer here. i realized, this summer, in quite some time, because -- i was in two hail storms in the summer. it's crazy. >> jimmy: no, well, we are having a weird summer. >> but, hold on. i thought hail was like when it was just -- before it was cold enough to snow. no. i looked it up. so the other day -- like three days ago, we had that massive storm. remember? >> jimmy: i thought it was the end of the world. >> yeah, right. like, the world was actually ending. >> jimmy: it was, like, pitch black at 4:00 in the afternoon. >> and i was on spring street in soho, so i was happy. i was like, this is the end of my life. here we go. but, i was -- well, first of all, i happened to walk out. it was 97 degrees. i was in white shorts and a white t-shirt. not a choice for a rainstorm. >> jimmy: no, no, not at all. >> so i had to -- i was like in -- i, kind of, took shelter. i was watching all these people going by like a movie and started with, like, this huge rain. and all of a sudden, there are pieces of hail that are like this big. and all i hear are people going, "ow, ow!" like, in the streets. seriously. so looked it up on my iphone. because i was like, why is it hailing? what's happening? >> jimmy: i don't know.
i want to know. >> it's like a pressure situation. it has nothing to do with temperature. it is like an air pressure situation that can happen in tropical places in the summer. silly me, i learned a lot. >> jimmy: wow. >> -- on the streets of soho. >> jimmy: wow, see, that's very good. i always learn something every time you come on. i was doing research -- about you. >> uh-oh. >> jimmy: and i came across a weird thing. is this -- did you -- you like lived in a tepee with gold prospectors? >> i did. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it sounds like something i would make up. by the way, there's that kid who was hallucinating earlier going, "i knew it!" [ laughter ] we all should live in tepees with gold prospectors. >> true. it really does make you an interesting person. >> jimmy: how does -- how would one do that? >> well, i lived in a tepee with my mom and we lived next to these gold prospectors, who were very good friends of ours. and who did mine for gold. now -- they did find some gold. i think they found enough gold to hold on to their title as gold miners. you know, because you don't want to lose that title. but i don't think that -- >> jimmy: living in a tepee, though, what's that -- >> yeah, it was amazing. i bathed -- we bathed in the
river. we went into town once a week to get, like, groceries and everything like that. >> jimmy: really? >> we had two little twin beds and a fire pit. and -- i was recovering from a really bad kidney operation as a very young kid and she wanted to take me into nature. so it was kind of the most amazing thing that my mom could have done. >> jimmy: that's pretty wild. >> pretty wild. >> jimmy: and then, how would you get from there to acting? >> well, i mean -- >> jimmy: you left the wigwam eventually. [ laughter ] sorry, tepee. >> well, we had to -- you have to entertain yourself in a tepee. so i did lots of little shows for my mom. >> jimmy: wow. >> no, i did a short stint of modeling after that, later. that was, like, when i was five. then, about 13 i started modeling for a brief -- i'm short, i couldn't really -- you know, i couldn't, like, walk the runways or anything like that. i found out that i wasn't kind of that into that. so, i started acting. and like, my first -- you know, i broke in with, like, "webster." i didn't know if you remember show "webster." >> jimmy: of course, emmanuel lewis. that's my man. >> if not, maybe "who's the boss."
>> jimmy: ah. eh, oh. oh, eh. i mean, yeah, of course. >> exactly. >> jimmy: angela, samantha, mona, jonathan. i loved "who's the boss," yeah. >> exactly. >> jimmy: angela. samantha. mona. that's what he gets for the yelling. >> very good. >> jimmy: yeah, thank you. >> yes, "alf." i mean, the list goes on. >> jimmy:"alf." >> really it's -- television that i did. >> of course, i loved "alf." but i think your most memorable is, of course, "true beverly hills." >> oh, wow, wow. >> jimmy: there you go, right there.

now, "huffington post" recently called you the jeremy lin of acting. >> which is pretty awesome. >> jimmy: i was like, what. because everyone around you -- you help everyone around you -- better. >> that is so -- that is so kind. i was kind of blown away by that analogy since he's -- you know, i was here for lin-sanity and i felt like -- >> jimmy: you knew who he was. >> yeah, well, i'm not the biggest -- i don't know -- i'm not a huge sports watcher. so the fact that i actually knew who he was right away was actually -- >> jimmy: like, i know who that is. >> i know that guy. >> jimmy: yeah, an i have lin-sanity. but, i mean, so you're doing this new show, "political animal." >> yes. >> jimmy: it's on usa and it's a limited run. >> yes. >> jimmy: and it's killing it. you're getting great reviews from everyone. "e.w." and everything online. you're getting great reviews. >> that's so cool to hear. it's a really good show. i really love it. this character -- i play a journalist. a washington journalist who's morally questionable. but, she has a very good heart and she gets in lots of good trouble. and sigourney weaver is phenomenal. ellen burstyn, ciaran hinds. i mean, we have such a -- >> jimmy: sigourney weaver plays like a --
she plays, like, a -- >> secretary of state. >> jimmy: secretary of state. once her husband is in the middle -- >> yes, he was sort of fooling around in ways that weren't so great. >> jimmy: in the white house. >> yes. >> jimmy: it just sounds familiar. >> really?
